Dear Diary

Guild Wars Fansite Friday #61 on the Official Website (thanks Guild Wars Slovenija) offers an update from Guild Wars lead designer Mike O'Brien offering ArenaNet's stance on in-game farming: "Of course, the number of players who engage in any of these activities -- farming exploits, using bots, selling or buying in-game items for cash –- is very small relative to the total player base. At ArenaNet we play the game just like you do, so we know that for most of you, gold is a precious commodity that you work hard to attain. In fact, our statistics show that 50% of all active accounts have fewer than 10 platinum pieces, and 75% of all active accounts have fewer than 20 platinum pieces. So when we make small tweaks here and there to keep the economy under control, please understand that we’re not trying to make the game harder for the average player. We work hard to understand how normal players play and how extreme players play, and then find just the minimal changes necessary to keep the economy healthy and fair."

The constant fear of any farmer is that his spot is going to be nerfed in the next patch. This why whenever you see farming location forum posts on guildwarsguru or any of the other GW fan sites somebody inevitably comes on and says that A) "this spot is already known and has been nerfed" or B) "why did you let this out?!? now its going to be nerfed!!!"

So you can understand my hesitancy to let you know my new favourite spot. I will say this though, that going to the forums at GW fan sites such as or can yield some good information about where/how ot farm. Or you can do whatever nin did to get his crazy uber drops

Edit: fixed various typos and missed words
